Het sociale aspect van het traineeship is echt een bijkomend voordeel. Iedere vrijdag zijn we sowieso al samen voor de persoonlijke ontwikkeling, maar we sluiten ook iedere vrijdag af met een borrel.

Wat ik fijn vind aan KLM is dat je ook de vrijheid hebt om bijvoorbeeld tussen de middag te gaan sporten. Ik vind dat KLM oprecht de work-life balance van haar medewerkers hoog in het vaandel heeft
